Message from the Active Living Alliance Chair, Douglas A. Nutting

Welcome to the Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability new website. We want to acknowledge the Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities, the Honorable Carla Qualtrough, the Office of Disability Issues, and Employment and Social Development Canada’s Social Development Partnership Program for their interest, support, and investment in the Alliance. This provides us with the means to activate our network across the country, and resume the important work for which the Alliance is known.

We have recently reconfigured our organization so we can continue to assist organizations at the local, provincial, and national level in offering inclusive and accessible active living opportunities to Canadians with disabilities.

We are committed to the important role that active living plays in the quality of life of all Canadians. Beyond the physical benefits, it also increases intellectual, social, and spiritual wellbeing. For people with disabilities, active living improves self-esteem and self-worth, contributes to a sense of belonging, nurtures growth and promotes the acquisition of life, employment and independent living skills.

Moving forward, our website will be our virtual office. We are committed to ensuring the information on the site represents best practices and provides a compelling rationale to individuals and organizations on the benefits of welcoming, accessible and inclusive active living opportunities for all.

Please take time to go through the site. If you have questions or suggestions, use the Contact Us feature. If you represent an organization, have them consider a membership in the Alliance. We look forward to working with you to increase the inclusive active living opportunities in Canada.
